Lax skin refers to skin that is loose, while elastic or firm skin is characterised by its tautness and excellent resilience. To determine if you have elastic facial skin, you can perform a simple test: just like bouncing a ball, elastic and firm skin will exhibit resistance and quickly bounce back.
Acne occurs when the follicle becomes inflamed and ruptures, resulting in the formation of an abscess in the surrounding area. This skin injury initiates a series of biochemical and immunoinflammatory reactions, which ultimately lead to the restructuring of extracellular matrices. Nodular and cystic acne are particularly prone to causing scarring.
